This picture perfect Canmore winter wedding, is from the ever talented Sarah Murdoch of Modern Photography. The gorgeous photos are evidence of the love and laughter so freely expressed by Julie and Doug’s family and friends. From the fun and laughter shared with the couple’s wedding party, to the loving gestures of family and friends, this wedding is picture perfect so many ways.
Murrieta’s in Canmore was the host to Julie and Doug’s, winter wedding. With vaulted ceilings, and majestic timber frame, Murrieta’s is a local Canmore fixture for great food. The couple chose to have both their ceremony and reception there.
The couple also decided to have a ‘First Look’ reveal and creative wedding photos with their wedding party outside in the snowy landscape!
One of the sweetest details of the day, was the cozy slippers that the grandmother of the bride knitted for every female guest. What an incredibly thoughtful and personal gesture.
From Modern Photography:
“Julie and Doug’s gorgeous winter wedding was held in Canmore at Murrieta’s. Although it was a cold November day, it was perfectly workable and provided for some magical moments.
The anticipation of the ‘First Glance’ is always a great way to start the day. From there we made our way to several of my favourite spots around Canmore. Most noticeable was a completely unexpected scene. Any time I see fog or mist, I always think about how lovely it would be to shoot a session in it, but rarely am I that lucky. But on Julie and Doug’s special day, we were all that lucky. To top it off, the mist rose from the river just as the sun was setting, giving way to a glorious pink and purple sky.
Once creatives were finished, we headed to Murrietas, which is fast becoming one of my absolute favourite venues in Canmore. Most of the weddings I do there utilize the cozy, casual vibe and do food stations to encourage movement and mingling. I can always tell that the guests really, really enjoy it. Plus, the food is just the best! It’s Murrietas after all. The night was capped with a hilarious, perfect bride and maid flash-mob to “teach me how to dougie”. It was difficult to remember to shoot. It was highly entertaining and one of my all-time favourite wedding moments for sure.” ~ Sarah | Modern Photography
